After 36 holes, the top or T70 players on the overall scoreboard will win the right to play the remaining two rounds at the major organized by the Professional Golf Association of America (PGAA).
According to this principle, the PGA Championship 2021 records the elimination line at +5. This year’s tournament – the 103rd session held at Ocean, par72 on Kiawah Island – kicked off on May 20 with an initial list of 156 golfers, including 20 representatives from the qualifying round opened by the PGAA exclusively for coaches. affiliated members. This group is named “PGA Team 20”, which includes 60-year-old Sonny Skinner – the oldest player in the tournament.
After the opening day, the tournament had 154 players left because Sam Burns withdrew due to a back injury, and former champion Yang YE was eliminated due to a wrong scorecard. At the 2009 PGA Championship, Yang came back from the position of Tiger Woods two strokes in the last round to take the throne.
This year’s cut is four more strokes than the 102nd at TPC Harding Park with 79 golfers in the last two rounds. In 2019, the tournament took place at Bethpage Black, the cut line was at +4 with 82 players going on, while the previous period on Bellerive field recorded 80 people playing all four rounds when the “filter” was at even par.
